Assistant Professor, Teachers College, Columbia University
OPEN TO PHD STUDENTS AND FACULTY ENGAGED IN CAUSAL INFERENCE IN EDUCATION RESEARCH
About the Speaker: Sarah Cohodes is an Assistant Professor of Education and Public Policy at Teachers College, Columbia University, and holds a Ph.D. in Public Policy from Harvard University. Her research uses quantitative causal inference methods to evaluate programs and policies that have the potential to ameliorate achievement gaps. She is particularly interested in how young people and their families make choices about education and how school and college quality interact with those decisions.
About CIERS: The objective of the Causal Inference in Education Research Seminar (CIERS) is to engage students and faculty from across the university in conversations around education research using various research methodologies. This seminar provides a space for doctoral students and faculty from social science disciplines to discuss current research and receive feedback on works-in-progress. Discourse across schools and departments creates a more complete community of education scholars, and provides a networking opportunity for students enrolled in a variety of academic programs who share common research interests.
Our regular meeting schedule is Wednesday mornings from 8:30 to 10 am in Weill 3240. Check out our website to learn more and to sign up for the mailing list.
